"Half" "Sunshine" Get Spirit
Headline worded awkwardly enough for you? The nominees for this year's Spirit Awards are in, with "Half Nelson" and "Little Miss Sunshine" leading the pack. Also up for Best Picture is "Pan's Labyrinth." Both "Labyrinth" and "Half Nelson" will be on my best of the year list and I'm about to watch "Sunshine." (I know, I know. It's not like it played in theaters long enough for me to see it properly but I just got the DVD.) Ryan Gosling even offered up a quote, so maybe he realizes it's better for his future career if he promotes his movies, especially labors of love that come out so beautifully. And how wonderful his young costar Shareeka Epps garnered a Best Actress nod. She matched him scene for scene.
